Milestone reached on £7m West Lothian assisted living scheme
An ambitious project to create a £7 million assisted living complex in Bathgate is close to completion.
The new 30 flat Rosemount Gardens complex in Mid Street, Bathgate is now completed, with the first tenants already settled in. As well as facilities solely for residents, the public are welcome to use the shared facilities in the complex including the atrium café, restaurant, garden, multi-purpose rooms and hairdressers.
Work has now started on phase two of the project, which involves refurbishing the existing adjacent Rosemount Court sheltered housing development into 16 one-bedroom flats to meet the future expectations and needs of older people.
The project is being delivered the council’s development partner, hub South East Scotland, with Graham Construction as the main contractor.
West Lothian Council leader John McGinty said: “The new £7m Rosemount Gardens and Court development will offer comfortable supported housing for local older people, and create a real sense of community through the welcoming communal areas.”
Paul McGirk, hub South East Scotland’s chief executive, added: “We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with West Lothian Council in delivering the second phase of this project.”
